Who we are

About Chestnut Residence

Chestnut Residence at the University of Toronto is home to nearly 1150 students from all University of Toronto faculties and colleges. We offer spacious rooms, high quality meals, and a vibrant residence life program. In the heart of downtown Toronto, Chestnut Residence is a great place to call home!


Our Community Commitment

The Chestnut Residence community strives to be a safe, equitable, accessible, and positive space for all our community members including students, staff and guests. Diversity and respect of thought, belief, orientation and background is encouraged and expected.

Every community member is responsible for their behaviour and for their treatment of others in a manner that is free of discrimination, harassment and ignorance. Any behaviour that conflicts with this commitment to the community will be addressed through the Residence Code of Conduct outlined in the Community Standards. Should any needs arise in terms of accessibility, the Residence will provide arrangements as required.

Land Acknowledgment

We wish to acknowledge this land on which Graduate House and the University of Toronto operates. For thousands of years it has been the traditional land of the Huron-Wendat, the Seneca and, most recently, the Mississaugas of the Credit River. Today, this meeting place is still the home to many Indigenous people from across Turtle Island and we are grateful to have the opportunity to work on this land.
